Part of life is growing, reflecting, learning, making mistakes (a few times over) and hopefully becoming a better person – a better you and liking who that person is.
2010 was probably my biggest year of growth and it isn’t stopping. I like it. Sure, some of the lessons have been less than pleasant. They’ve down right hurt. A lot. Hindsight is a beautiful thing and I’m grateful for each one because they’ve made me a stronger person. I’m actually pretty thankful for all the bumps and bruises because without them; I certainly wouldn’t appreciate the really good things in my life.
Sometimes you need the rain to see and appreciate the rainbow.
